Apple has been pretty quiet thus far about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S, but hints of their release dates come in every day.
It appears now that the phones could be released in quarter three of 2013, and that the iPhone 6 might have a 4.5-inch retina display.
Rumor has it that Apple has a contract with Sharp who will begin production on LCD panels for the smart phones in Japan sometime in June.
But the iPhone 5S was reported to be in production when Apple sent orders to LG Display and Japan Display recently, confirming manufacturing in the second quarter of the year.
"Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services that we can't wait to introduce this fall and throughout 2014,” Apple chief Tim Cook said.
That squashes earlier rumors that the iPhone 5S would hit as early as June.
But the 4.5-inch retina display iPhone 6 rumor may turn some heads.
That means that the display will cover the entire phone, going edge to edge.
Marketing images for the phone turned up on iPhone-MY.com with a tagline that read, "The only way to create a true edge-to-edge display is to remove the edge altogether.”
The iPhone 6 will reportedly have a longer and wider touchscreen than the previous installment, the iPhone 5. Yet the two devices are identical in size.
"Your eyes will notice the difference but your hands won't,” the marketing on iPhone-MY.com says.
The phone is also rumored, by the same advertisements, to have an aluminum-carbon fiber unibody case. The ads boast that it makes the phone 40 percent lighter but 60 percent stronger.
As for the iPhone 5S, experts debate whether it will come with an 8-megapixel or 12-megapixel camera. There is even a rumor that it might have wireless charging capabilities.
Of course, take all these with a grain of salt, but expect announcements on the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 in the coming weeks.
